Farscape: The Choice
Not a bad episode. Again, I don't score Farscape fairly high on the originality level. I find most of the plots to be predictible. Like most shows, Farscape uses the same themes over and over again in addition to many of the same plot twists. I've come to expect that in every show I watch.
That being said, it was good. I thought they all acted well in this and that CB did an especially good job here. It was a tough theme--loss and grief--but portrayed very well.
I wasn't too fond of the return of the old John and Aeryn. *cringe* But I have to admit that the one thing that surprised me was how much John was in it. I know BB stars, but considering this John was dead, he sure got a lot of mileage.
I did like Rygel in this episode, though. I don't like that puppet most of the time, but when they do try to show a range of his character, it works. I hope to see more of that in the future.
I suppose they are building up to something by the way this episode was shaped. I sense some foreshadowing with Zhaan, Stark's mask, and the fate of Crais.
MacGyver: The Golden Triangle
I also watched another MacGyver episode. Hmm. I hope my mom didn't want me to wait for her. I should double check with her to see if she wanted to be watching this series as well.
I didn't like this one as much as the pilot, but it was still fun. And RDA is still hot.
I have to admit, I sort of like the whole "agent for the government" thing he has going on in S1. I hope I'll end up liking the Phoenix Foundation when that later comes into play.
But it's for selfish reasons, really. As I am watching S1, I keep watching MacGyver and thinking how Jack must have handled himself behind enemy lines in a pinch. Heh heh. Minus the science, of course.
My SG-1 obsession never fails to slip in somehow. But independent of my thoughts on jack, it's a pretty good show so far :)
I'm only getting worse health wise. It's good thing I had a follow up doc appt planned this week anyway. I think it's a sinus infection. Blech.
